Each year in the Jonesville Academy, community and financial partnerships play a significant role in the sustainability of the program. When seeking partnerships, we hope to obtain and draw interest from businesses and organizations that see the value in our program and support our values in their own work. Investing in the lives of young people is an action that provides a return greater than a few others. We hope that you consider investing your gifts and time as a Jonesville Academy Partner through any of the four partnership levels or by serving as a volunteer.
